Fall 2018 ARCHES RFP

Opportunity Information

Title
Fall 2018 ARCHES RFP
Description
The Jump Applied Research for Community Health through Engineering and Simulation [Jump ARCHES] Endowment offers this Request for Proposals to members of faculty of the University of Illinois College of Engineering at Urbana-Champaign, members of faculty of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, and/or OSF Healthcare System clinicians.

The goal of this select competitive grant is to improve healthcare quality and patient safety through the combined efforts of engineers and clinicians.

UIUC investigators please contact Antonios Michalos, M.D., M.S., Associate Director, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign - (217) 244-4563 e-mail: michalos@illinois.edu for questions regarding preparation of a responsive application.

OSF investigators please contact Jessica Svendsen, BA, CCRC, Jump Research Manager, OSF Healthcare- (309) 308-9536 email: jessica.d.svendsen@osfhealthcare.org

Category Explanation
The goal of this program is to use our combined expertise in the broad areas of Sensing Devices, Materials and Mechanics, Health Information Technologies, Simulation, Human Factors/Industrial Ergonomics and Design for executing collaborative projects which could be used for and directed to simulation in training of the healthcare practitioners of tomorrow. During the current cycle we encourage proposals in the following areas: • The training and evaluation of undergraduate medical students • The training and evaluation of graduate medical education learners ("interns" and "residents") • Inter-professional education incorporating the above • Distance learning solutions The proposed research should address the needs of clinical simulations and training, and be amenable to translational activities, which lend themselves to full deployment and commercialization of the outcomes for use in medical training. Proposals will be specifically evaluated for their respective alignment to program goals [Relevance], the potential impact on patient and learner outcomes [Impact], and the proposed plan and quality of the team proposed [Approach]. Proposals must identify two Co-Investigators: one from the University of Illinois College of Engineering at Urbana-Champaign and one from among the clinicians providing care within OSF Healthcare System.

Submission Timeline Additional Information
Proposals will be reviewed swiftly with an announcement of awards by first week of January, 2019. Review Process The steering panel for Jump ARCHES will prioritize: • Applied research programs that evaluate the improvement of patient outcomes through clinical simulation. • The creation of equipment and facilities to evaluate and improve health care through clinical simulation. • Contributions to scholarship and support for advanced degrees to prepare new generations of experts in the field. • Proposals which are competitive for additional external funding to advance the broader use of clinical simulation in healthcare. Suitable space will be assigned to Jump ARCHES within the new 3rd and 4th floor of the Jump Sim Center building above the simulation center and adjacent to the landmark Milestone building of OSF Saint Francis Medical Center and at Health Care Engineering Systems Center if required. This location will provide access to a wide spectrum of clinical professionals and their existing health care technologies, and illuminate the challenges they face in the transformation of health care. Continued Funding For the current ARCHES grantees, we invite you to submit a proposal for funding to continue the project, if excellent progress has been made during the initial phase(s) of the project. Will require a final report before continued funding request is reviewed. The proposal must show potential for translational research or external funding opportunity. Extended proposal deadlines are the same as described earlier. Information will be captured in the form intake process.
